Natural Colon Cleanse
What is the Colon:
The colon, shaped like an inverted U, is a 6ft. section of the final stages of the digestive system. Its main functions are to absorb the remaining water and electrolytes, to store food remains that were not digested in the small intestine, and to move solid waste material from the small intestine to the rectum for elimination. Everything you eat and drink goes through the colon.
Healthy Colon Function:
The colon is critical in maintaining a healthy body fluid balance. As waste material moves through the colon, the lining absorbs most of the water, salts, vitamins and minerals present. Special bacteria and critical flora housed in the colon, feed on the fiber, breaking it down in order to produce nutrients that will nourish the cells that line the colon.
Un-Healthy Colon Function:
When your colon is healthy and functioning well these essential life-giving nutrients are properly absorbed and help to build healthy cells in the body. When waste is not eliminated fast enough it can become impacted in the colon and becomes putrefied. When this happens, the colon begins absorbing toxins into the blood stream rather than expelling them.
Unfortunately, our world places an extreme toxic burden on the colon. Most of the food we consume lacking in nutrients, and is filled with additives and preservatives. A normal, healthy colon should weight about 1 lb, but when a back-up occurs, its weight can increase by up to 10 times. In some cases, people can carry pounds and pounds of impacted fecal matter built-up in their colon for years. The result is a myriad of problems ranging from constipation and gas, candida, arthritis, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic health issues. This can also affect the immune system and cause internal toxification.
This is why it is so important to maintain healthy colon function through the use of colon cleanses. Cleanses can release years of impacted build-up, reducing the toxic overload of your colon, digestive system, blood and body.
Invented about 100 years ago and also known as, colon irrigations, high colonics are similar to enemas but involve much more water and no discomfort. The sessions may last up to an hour, while you lie on a table. A colonic hygienists or colon therapists flushes your inner abdomen with 20 gallons of water through a tube inserted into your rectum. Then the fluids and loosed waste is flushed by the therapists through another tube. This process may be repeated. The use of different water temperature and pressures as well as the addition of enzymes, herbs, coffee, or probiotics, may be used.
